Glossybox Spring Fling March 2013 Review and Swatches

Time for spring flowers with Glossybox. This month, Glossybox was oozing with spring flare - from the flower adorned information card, to the magazine cover featuring a model wearing a flowy dress and a floral crown. This month had a mix of fresh items

The products this month were a combination of products from cosmetics to hair to soap. I love when i get a box with products from all different categories.
Elite Models Liner-
I am always up for trying a new liquid liner. While this isn't the most amazing liner i have ever tried i like that its bold, easy to apply, and opaque. This brown shade is neutral enough to be safe for any look while still being deep enough to define the eye. Fast drying. No smudges. Long lasting.
Full Size: 15$

Koh Gen Do Cosmetics Oriental Plants Emollient Cream-
When i first saw this product i really wasn't sure how to use it. I did have to google it. This product is meant to moisturize and keep skin looking fresh and dewy. While this sample was so small i couldn't really gauge if it really had any effect, i did like trying it
Full Size- 123$

ModelCo Cheek + Lip Tint
I have to be honest, the more times i try this brand the less and less i like it. From their sticky glosses to this tint that doesn't show up on the skin i am just not impressed. I did think that the packaging was cute and had there been a bit more pigmentation i would have been sold.
Full Size -24$

Prestiche Essential Oil Bar Soap-
This product had me at $40 gift Certificate. Yes a real gift certificate not a coupon mascaraing as a gift certificate. This bar of soap really left my skin feeling so soft and i loved, loved, LOVED, the scent of it. I went to the site and turns out they have lots of great natural items to choose from. Though they are a bit pricey i was able to get two bars of soap (one scented chocolate, oh i love confectionery themed products), and only had to pay shipping (yes shipping is a steep $12, but so worth it). I was glad that this product was included.
Full size - 16.99$

Sebastian Professional Shaper Fierce-
I love the name of this product. Anything with the word fierce in it just tickles my fancy. This product is a shaping spray  designed to keep any style in place. My hair is long, therefor heavy, and keeping any style in place can be a challenge. This product did help to retain volume and style for a bit longer than the average product.
Full size- 17$

Overall the variation of different types of products did impress me. Though i was not a fan of all of them i am glad i could try them, that's the point of a subscription like this anyway, right? Some items fell flat like the ModelCo and Koh Gen Do Cosmetics but products like Prestiche and Elite Models are products i will be (and already have) purchasing/purchased. I liked how many full size products were included (liner, soap, cheek and lip tint). What did you think of the March 2013 Spring Fling Glossybox?
